Visiting New Orleans for the first time January 16th - 19th... recommendations?

Dear Chowhounders:

This is my very first time using this message board. I have read some of the posts and have an idea of which restaurants to go to. I LOVE FOOD. All kinds of food, especially prime rib.

I'm arriving Friday, Jan 16th around 5:30pm from San Francisco and leaving on Monday evening around 5:00pm. I'll be staying at the Hilton Riverside Hotel. Never stayed there but heard it was a good location (if you are local to N.Orleans, is there a better place (location wise)).

Reason for my posting:
To see if anyone can help me create a fun itinerary for my stay in New Orleans. I want to make sure I cover the right restaurants while in town.

Friday - Dinner @ 7:00pm after hotel check in
Saturday - Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Sunday - Lunch Dinner Dessert
Monday - Breakfast Lunch

I think the Hilton Riverside is located at Two Poydras Street in New Orleans. I'm guessing while in New Orleans besides eating, I will be going around to several shops. What else should I be doing? I won't have a rental car ... is there some fun touristy (not too touristy) thing to do there. I've heard of someone going to see alligators before. Not sure if that's fun or not. Sorry, getting off topic.

Thanks for any help you can provide about FOOOOOOOD!

Kindest Regards,
ps. you can email me at but I will be checking this board every so often before I leave. Thanks!
